How much does your 5 yr old eat?

The last few months my 5 yr old DD has been eating like crazy. She will have a snack or meal and within an hour she is asking for something more to eat. She usually eats it too. She didn't always eat this much, its been maybe the last 6 weeks to 2 months. Does anyone elses 5 year old seem constantly hungry?

I have 5 yo twins. Neither of them are eating all that much right now, but it seems every few days they'll eat more than normal. Still not as much as you are describing though! 6 weeks? I'd say growth spurt, but I don't think they typically last that long. They dont with my kids anyway.

DS has been like that for the last 3-4 first I thought it was a growth spurt, but they've never lasted this long before and he doesn't seem to have grown at all in height or weight yet. He's always been super active and he's not any more active than usual, so I don't think thats it.

My 5 year old usually eats more than me and the 6 year old combined
